# Deceleration Calculator

Deceleration is the opposite of acceleration (i.e) slowing down. When you brake to stop your car, you are decelerating. Acceleration and deceleration are vectors, therefore, they have a magnitude and a direction. To calculate Deceleration, subtract Final Velocity with Initial Velocity and divide the answer by Time. The below Deceleration calculator helps to calculate the result. Just enter Final Velocity, Initial Velocity and Time to get the value of Deceleration.

#### Formula:

Deceleration = (V_{f} - V_{i}) / t
**Where,**
V_{f} = Final Velocity
V_{i} = Initial Velocity
t = Time
### Example:

A motorbike starts at an initial velocity of 12m/s and travels for 100 seconds ending up with a final velocity of 60 m/s.

#### Solution:

Deceleration = (V_{f} - V_{i}) / t

= (60 - 12) / 100

= 0.48 m/s^{2}
